UV Upgrade kit for Mint White Series. This is TRUE UV. UVA + UVB. 100w, 136 diodes per bar. Not 30w and 20 diodes.... If you do UV...do it right, like nature. A small amount of UV and the plant will not respond.
Includes: 2 UV bars (UVA + UVB) + 100w driver to clip onto the Fold Series. Does not include the full Mint White Series Light (purchase separately)
Can also be used as a stand alone option. UV bars + driver and plug. UVA (395nm) + UVB (310nm). Recommendation is to hang between existing bars or lights and plug in for the last 2-3 weeks of flowering.
UV wavelengths can change the color, flavor, and smell of a plant. These changes in color, flavor, and smell often make plants more appealing to humans, but more toxic to some insects. Plants with increased levels of these flavor/smell compounds are less likely to get eaten by insects! Lastly, there is strong evidence that UV wavelengths light prevents the spread and severity of fungal spores.

So....UV is still experimental right now. What we recommend is to use the last 2-3 weeks of flower up to the full 12 on cycle. The idea would be to reduce any PM/Microbials (cleaner cannabis) and create a stress response that might bring out more cannabinoids. Just like UV damages our skin...it can damage the plants dna and reduce yield. So caution is warranted before the heavy bulking stage.....although we have never heard or experienced a reduction in yield or hermaphrodite issues.
We have customers that use veg - with the idea that is what nature intended. The only problem with that - UV didoes only have a 10k hour life span.
